From the Desk of Jim Collins
As October draws to a close, I would like to first say thank you to each of you for the hard work and dedication to your profession that you show each day. We had a very strong month in October, freight remained strong, revenue was solid, and the truck count continues to grow. All of that is a credit to each of you, along with our agents, as well as all of our hard working employees, both in the home office and in the field. In the end, it all starts with you, our valued owner operators, and your dedication to moving our customers freight in a safe and timely manner. Thank you for a continued job well done.
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you of the new Ace Doran Safety Call that we started in September. The call is held on the last Wednesday of the month at 2:00 PM and usually lasts approximately 45 minutes. The number of drivers on the call doubled from just over 40 in September to over 80 in October. My hope is that we can double that number and have 160 of you on the call this month! Employees and Agents are also more than welcome to join us on the call. The call is hosted by Dale Stanek, our Safety Director, and is directed to you, our professional owner operators. We try to include information that you will find interesting, helpful, and informative. We will also have different guests / speakers on the call each month covering a variety of topics, mostly, but not exclusively, centered on Safety. I would like to ask that each of you try to join us on the call each month. It would be awesome if we could get to near 100% participation. Should you have any suggestions or ideas of people or topics that you would like us to include in the coming months please let us know. We want this call to be for you, about you, and most importantly, helpful to you.
Thank you again for all that you do. I wish all of you a productive and safe month of November. I also extend my wishes to each of you and your families for a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
Jim Collins – President
